I just got back from my hoidays to find that the Norway v Scotland game has been rescheduled to 19 August instead of the original 12 August. Because of Champions League dates, UEFA made a request to FIFA to move the date forward. They were happy to agree.

Apparently the SFA made ‘repeated attempts’ to have the date changed to Ocrtober, after the start of the SPL season. As seems to be usual, the SFA was “disaapointed”.

Anyway, now we can start making plans. We have flights to Oslo in mind and are hoping to book some accommodation for 4 days. Oslo is meant to be expensive for beers, so if anyone knows of some cheap venues, we have would welcome a reply.
